My Students

My students are identified as talented and gifted. They enjoy playing games of skill, strategy, and logic. They enjoy building with various materials. They like to write and create stories. They like to use their Chromebooks to work on coding. They like to draw. They like to write their own stories and read the stories of classmates. They also like to read. Students have a great time working collaboratively together. All students have multiple abilities. They love to engineer projects. I would love to add to my collection of building materials.

My Project

I added great building materials to enhance the materials that I have already purchased my students. They love to build. They love to create. They have great ideas that they share through our engineering days and through projects that they create. These materials will be used during Recess. They will be used on Think Tank Fridays. They will be used to enhance projects. I ordered K'NEX building materials. I also ordered more magnetic blocks because they love playing and creating with those blocks and at this time, I do not have enough. Thank you.
